this was the only time that I was awake v
in tho secret chamber.
When I opened my eyes to sense again,
censer, the tiro, and the hug of flame an
the tripod were gone, and I saw only thc
of mv innaman leaning over nie.
"Had vou crossed tho tire. Zillah, you c
havo died. But your wish is granted. T
did you desire ?"
"I wro:e, 'Let Ambroso come hither,
lothian love me,"' I answered, as my chi
glowed with sudden shame.
The earl laughed at this. "Not so, my
witeh; this is what was written."
And crossing the circle, to where the ?
lay dead, be lifted from it the paper, seora
yet sot burned. And on it I read this : "
the wife of Ambrose bo accursed, let her
as the wicked dio. and let tho heart of
husband be turned against her." I fl
the paper from my ?aand, and burst into bi
'*^Am I come to this," I said, "that ?ike

"I thought tho spell would amt thy jeal
nature." said the earl. "And take heed tl

that I wroto it."
My soul was siok for son-ow, when in

and his faoe flushed scornfully. "Have j

him ?very day, and loved him ?etter than
old, and being freed now from his love for Bi
trice, his heart turned to me, and he loved 1
ts dearly as man ever loved woman.
'.Ziihb," be said once, "I think I havo lov

upon an old fish-wife, who beat a little elli
.with a cruel hand. And under this spell t
hag belabored her own visage till she shriek

I laughed, and yet I trembled. " Tis tru?
I said; "I have some such power. Some I c
make sing and danoo, laugh or cry; I cann

the hue of death, "Beware, Zillah, cf th

So, fearing to loso bis love. I doled n
tail him of the secret sorceries to whioh ti
? earl had forced me; but I feigned illness, ai
refused again and again to go to the mag
chamber, till my kinsman grew angry and dei
roughly with me. Then I told Ambroso of b
hardness, and we two, being resolved to fie

brought to tho castle a fitter, closely cur tam?
guarded by armed men, and I saw alight fro
it Beatrice-the Lady Beatrice Damornow.
She spoke courteously to my father and ac
brose; but aa sba passed mo, she drew awt
her robe, and muttered
"I like not witch-blood.''.
That night I wept bit-yarly at my husband
knee, and besought him tc* leave this evil cai
tie. Then with kisses and kind words h
soothed me, saying ho would wait till the earl
treasurer had p'aid him for his work, then v,
\ Ihe next day a whisper ran through th
r\N^ household that the earl would wed his ward
b&jf - the Lady Beatrice; and the poor wan boy-hi

I said "yes" with my eyes, not daring t

and leant his cheek against mine.
' Zillah," he said, "I have but theo in th

"Come away from the witch, boy 1" cried ?
ix was tue Lady Beatrice, who had slolei
softly on us as we sac in tho embrasured win
dow. And at her bidding the child's smal
arms tell down from my neck, and, with Upi
quivering, and tearful eyes looking back or
me, he went with her, she dragging him bv th<
S- 4 hand,
? ' ? Teat evoDibg, as I sat alone spinning, thc
earl cime? upon me suddenly.
"Zillah,' be said sternly, "I will not have
my child's heart turned against the lady who ii
to be his mother."
"She lies, if shs 6ays 1 did it!" I answerod
scornfully. Then my courage faded, and I fell
on my knees.
"lay lord, I have troubled your roof toolong;
let me depart."
PJJ^,^ ''Pu* ???de such a thought forever, Zillah,"
SS he said in a finn voice. "Thou art my guest

"Thy husband, girl ! Who is thy husband?"
"Ambrose, the painter, my lord."
Even here in the close prison I shrink from
thought of the earl's fury. He struck mo to
the ground in a sudden" frenzy; but as I
crouched, fearing a second blow, I felt hi&
strong arma wind about me, and lus Lif. s stifled
my cry wich kisses.
.'_ "O rare witch and fooll" ho said; "not to

beguiled me uto lovo. O Zil.ah ! Zillah ! in
the witch-chamber whero we wrought our
spells, when that mystic shep bound thee,
thino arms havo clasped my uock, and thv lips

Breakiu,? from him, I fell upon my knees,
and Razed into his cruel face with looks of
horror. Was he speaking truth? Was I so
lost? Had my lips ever touched his-I, who so
feared and hated him that I shuddered evon it
his shadow crossed me? Then there came into
my momory thronged shapes of pain cud
horror unutterable. The mmes ot iucouso
and the smoke of cncheutnients rose up before
me, and wi thin their wreathed vapors writh?
ed grim sh-dows aud forms ot demons. And
witn these there grew upou my lips tho earl's
bot kies, drawiug soul and soaso away. Yield?
ing to it as to a hideous spoil, 1 sank dowu
senseless aa his arma clasped me.
I awoke in the witch-chamber. I w s lying on
a silken couch, aud before merose tho perfume
of incense aud the smoke of enchantments.
Between thu wreathed ur-us I saw dimly tho
form of the earl, who c.mo and went like a
?. shadow; but I could neither speak nor move;
for the spices that burned close by numbed
my sense. Then suddenly he tornea; ho lixed
R bis eyes on my mino, and waved his arms as
wizards do. I struggled against the spell; 1
^ loathed the power conquering me. But all

his suoulder. Th 11 bia lips touched my ear,
whispering words of love.
- "Aly life, this night 1 have but half-chained

Then upon my fainting hoart 1 heard i
echo of his steps "through corridor and vauli

hung, and on to tho sliding panel. As
hand touched this, my writhing spirit strove
a last struggle to bs lreo; but the voico of 1
wizard-earl whispered, "Say thou lovest r.

loathing lips uttered tho words he bade me.

As ono in a dream, Ambrose stood be wild?

jewelled baud-Beatrice's-seize his arm a

did not awake me, till the earl unbound t
spell. Then, in my misery and shame, os 1
mocking eye laughed in ray faco, I fell weepi
and moaning at bis feet.
"Poor witch !" Go to thy husband now, a
seo if ho will accept thy conipany. Get to t
chamber and weep there; I bato tears."
1 fled from him, weeping as I went, and th
in anguish I sought Ambrose, but ho w
gone. Then, like one maddened, I rush
for;h into tho night, and overtook my husba
beyond tho drawbridge, walking slowly, wi
his head bent low and lips quivering,
caught him by tho hand, >;nd implored him

And casting ruo ft om him, ho wont Iiis way.
I would havo followed him, but as 1 arc

And now I cannot recount what happen
el to me, for my memory is full only c
dim shapes. I know I wandered hither am
thither-not always m my right mind-till m;
beauty was gone" through weather and want
and the lameness that rest and luxury bad al
most healed grew upon mo painfully. I cnn
not say how lang I wandered. I see, ns in i
picture, tho summer sun, and the winter suov
descending on tho head of a weird woman win
begs for chanty, while children run from he;
and men cbase her as a witeh.
I was crooked, ns I have said, and lame, am
poor; and my long hair, which in summer
time I washed in clear streams and decket
with flow?re, fell down io my feet. So you sei
I was like a witch. *
I remember this sommer-this last summe;

As they dragged mo on, bridge and moat
buttress and tower, grew familiar to me; am
as we crossed tho hall I looked up ou the paint'

myself face to face with that great wizard, anti
his-wife the Lady Beatrice.
Her eyes gleamed with joy and bato ns abc

But I was past grief and fear; and careless
as a stone drops into a well, so did I fall upon
the straw of that damp dungoon, and lorget in
sleep my misery and my madness.
A bright light awoke mo and a strong hand
lifted me tu my feet.
"Zillah, it is I," said tho earl's voice. "There
is powor still shining in those wild eves of
thine. Promiso to obey mo, and I will freo

he took them in his strong grasp.
"Zillah, 1 have discovered stranpo secrets iu

greater things. These mysteries aro no sorce?
ries, they aro truths; and through these I eau
show men how to travel swift as birds. I can

But I tore my bands from his grasp, and ran
shrieking round my dungeon, drowning his
prayers and promises with my ciics. Wearied
at last with my madness he flung mo from his
hand in fury.
"Die, witch, thou, if you will," he said. And
he took up his lamp to depart. But at thc gate
he turned, and as the light shone upon his
face, 1 saw it full of bitterness. "Zillah, poor
fool and witch," ho said, "there is something
in my soul that ia sorry tor thee. Awnko, thou
art only a poor weak woman; but in sleep thou
bust told mo some of tho wisest secrets that

England's sake, be my witch again."
I shudderod at his words. "Our lady forbid,"
I cried, "that I should aid thee in thy sorce?
ries! England has stout arms and arrows for
her foes. Take thy witch-boll away; it mad?
dens me !"
Ho looked at me with exceeding sorrow.
"Zillah, thy brain ia crazed. And I am vorily
to blame tbac in thy wilch-slcop I made thoe
foign lova lor mo. I did il to drive thy hus?

I would not answer him. I sat cowering in

"It was a daod worthy of a wizard," 1 said,
"to trample thus on a woman's happiness and
"What was one woman's peace, compared to
the glurious truths I sought-truths that
would make millions happy?''
Ho spoke as if to himself, but my heart
swelled ut his cmelty.
"Leave me !" I cried iu indignation.

"Zillah! Zillah !" thc times are not ripe for

"On thy head let it be," I answered.
He stood a moment at tho door, gazing on
me sorrowfully, tho dying lamp throwing a
pale light across his haggard faco.
"Dost thou forgive me, Zillah? ' he said.
I thought of my lost life, my crazed wander?
ings, und my hnsbauds hoait turned against
me. and my eyes swam in salt tears.
"But Ibero was Ono who suffered more," I
said to nriself; so I answered, "Go iu peace; 1

had hoped to do will die now for ages. Hasten,
gil I, Test I attempt again to soize thee !"
Ho uudid tho chaius upon my hands, and as
these dropped with a heavy clank apon tho
stones, he left mo. I listened to his ascend?
ing steps, but at tho top of tho narrow stairs
he missed his footing and fell. Then a noise
hko thunder shook the caBtlo from the top?
most turret to tho duugeou floor, a flash of
tiro blinded mo, and 1 fell senseless. When I
awoke, I saw moonlight through a rift in tho
wall, and passing over fallen stones and dust,
I reached thc ;uius of tho stairs, aud beheld
the earl lying dead, hooping ovor him I un?
did his vest, and found the ball of crystal
which he had mado by sorcery was gone.
Doubtless this had killed him; and his face
was blackened as hy Sro. Moreover, an unho?
ly emoll ot sulphur, and a hideous smoko,
?iiod thc ruin.
I sat by the dead man amazed, not seeking
to escape; and here the frightened warders
"The witch! tho witch!" they cried; "abe
hath slain my lord tho earl. He lieth hero
dead-slain by sorcery; and the wall is rent
and the castle shakou by her witchcrafts."
And so, amid woeping, and cries ot toiror,
and blows, I was carried to another dungeon,
I will not tell of tho long, long months in
prison; I will not toll of tho torturo and thc
chain. These bloodshot oyes haye wept toard
of blood, aud thoso parched lips have shrieked
iii vain for morey. 1 eoutcBscd willingly to all
my sorceries, but these did not .content them;
so under torture I shrieked a thousand false?
hoods. I told of things that could uot be; I

When my trial came, tho warders swore it
was I who had killed tho carl-I who had
shaken the ibunda ions ol thc castle, andopenod
the door of my prison by enchantments.
Tho Countess Beatrice witnessed against me
with calm cruelty; and, though 1 appealed to
her for my life's sako to say it L ei husband
practiced not strange aits, sho answered
"iSever, witch, unless betwitched by theo."
Aud the judge said that, save by sorcery, no
such bull as I bau spoKen of cadd be made;
therefore-1 was condemned by my own lips.
Then they 'nought a witness inf court, thc
